Causation is a foundational concept in tort law: a claimant must demonstrate that the defendant's conduct was a cause of the harm suffered in order for damages to be awarded.
Proof of Causation in Tort Law provides a critical, comparative and theoretical analysis of the general rules of causation underlying the tort laws of England, Germany and France, as well as the exceptional departures from these rules which each system has made. Exploring the different approaches to uncertainty over causation in tort law, Sandy Steel defends the justifiability of these exceptions, and categorises and examines the kinds of exceptional rules suggested by the case law and literature.
Critically engaged with both the theoretical literature and current legal doctrine, this book will be of interest to private law scholars, judges and legal practitioners.
